It will be held on 30th and 31st August 2015 at the Cagliari Theatre “Beauty will daze you”, a performance/installation by the choreographer Enzo Cosimi who reinterpreted “Venus of the rags” by Michelangelo Pistoletto and teamed with the bright fashion designer Fabio Quaranta who created the costumes of event, including also a sliver of womenswear Spring/Summer 2016 collection which will be presented during the Paris Fashion Week. It’s a dreamlike tale, dying with a rarefied and suspended inquietude and exploring the archetype of homeless, its royal solitude, its being an outsider who peoples an underground world and lives at the edge of contemporary society. A not to be missed happening to enjoy art dialoguing with fashion.

Si terrà il 30 e 31 agosto 2015 presso il Teatro Civico di Castello di Cagliari “La bellezza ti stupirà”, una performance/installazione del coreografo Enzo Cosimi il quale ha reinterpretato la “Venere degli stracci” di Michelangelo Pistoletto ed ha collaborato con il brillante fashion designer Fabio Quaranta che ha creato i costumi dell’ evento, comprensivi anche di un frammento della sua collezione donna primavera/estate 2016 che sarà presentata in occasione della Fashion Week parigina. È un racconto fiabesco, che si tinge di un’ inquietudine sospesa e rarefatta ed esplora l’ archetipo dell’ homeless, la sua regale solitudine, il suo essere un outsider che popola un mondo sotterraneo e vive ai margini della società contemporanea. Un imperdibile happening per apprezzare l’ arte che dialoga con la moda.

It follows my tale in reverse, made by words and images featuring “Art and food”, the exhibition curated by Germano Celantrunning through 1st November 2015 – recently opened at the Milan Triennale Design Museum. A lapse of time going mostly from Fifties to Eighties is told the exhibition’s path second section. A suggestive showcase which exhibits many objects, talking about the relationship between food and art, a theme explored through the photography by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ugo Mulas, pop-art by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Mimmo Rotella, Roy Lichtenstein and other artists, enriched by the creations made by the fashion designer Ken Scott( though fashion is a delicate presence, just murmured into the exhibition, evidence of a culture eradicate in Italy which still considers fashion as a secondary discipline and gives the primacy to the visual arts), the commercials by Armando Testa (bright creative who made the commercial saga of Carmensita for the Paulista coffee by Lavazza ) and impressed also on music, embodied in the cover albums of celebrated bands as Rolling Stones.

Prosegue il mio racconto a ritroso, fatto di parole e immagini di cui è protagonista “Art and food”, la mostra curata Germano Celant – che prosegue fino all’ 1 novembre 2015 – recentemente inaugurata al Museo del Design della Triennale di Milano. Un lasso di tempo che va principalmente dagli anni Cinquanta agli anni Ottanta è raccontato dalla seconda sezione del percorso espositivo. Una suggestiva rassegna che espone plurimi oggetti che parlano della relazione tra cibo e arte, un tema esplorato attraverso la fotografia di Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ugo Mulas, la pop-art Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Mimmo Rotella, Roy Lichtenstein, arricchita dalle creazioni del fashion designer Ken Scott(benché la moda sia una presenza delicata, appena sussurrata all’ interno della mostra, dimostrazione di una cultura da sradicare in Italia che ancora considera la moda come una disciplina secondaria rispetto alla primazia data alle arti visive), dalle pubblicità di Armando Testa (brillante creativo che ha realizzato la saga pubblicitaria di Carmensita per il caffè Paulista di Lavazza) e impressa anche nella musica, racchiusa negli album delle copertine di celebri band quali i Rolling Stones.
